WASHINGTON (AP) - A Florida company said Monday that the database of Apple device information that hackers stole and posted on the Internet last week came from a file the firm had in its computer system.
The disclosure comes nearly a week after a hacker group, which calls itself AntiSec, claimed that the data was stolen from an FBI laptop. The FBI flatly rejected the claim, saying it never possessed the information. The data included about 1 million unique identification numbers for Apple devices and some personal information, such as the names people assign to their iPads, iPhones and iPods.
Orlando-based BlueToad is a digital publishing company that converts files so that they can be more easily read online and by mobile devices. The FBI did not comment on BlueToad's disclosure.
